8th Annual Academic Signing Day

A tremendous thank you to all of the sponsors, donors and students who attended our 8th Annual Academic Signing Day on April 26, 2018 at the Boston Harbor Hotel.


This year’s event was our most successful fundraiser in the history of the school and will have a tremendous impact on the lives of our students, who rely on generous support from our benefactors to be able to attend Cristo Rey Boston High School.

President of Empower Retirement


Ed is a long-standing champion of the mission of Cristo Rey Boston. He works tirelessly as a member of the Board of Trustees, a Corporate Work Study partner and benefactor to ensure that the journey of our students is filled with promise and opportunity.



This special evening marks a significant milestone for our students, many of whom are the first in their families to complete high school and enroll in college. The 8th Annual Academic Signing Day Gala honors our seniors' hard work, determination and success, and recognizes the support of our corporate sponsors and donors that make it all possible. 


Congratulations to the Class of 2018!

100% of this year’s graduating class has been accepted into a 4-year college or university for next fall. In fact, since 2010, all our seniors have received at least one acceptance into college.


Special recognition to the Top 5 Academic Students in this year’s graduating class. Chantal Arias, Boston College, Alys Bosque, Bentley University, Mercy Moncada, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, Anagabriel Rojas, Brown University and Mylda Vaz, University of Massachusetts, Lowell.


Additionally, we were pleased to honor Devon Herra of Praskauer Rose LLP with the Mark P. Harty Corporate Work Study Supervisor Award.
